From networking to stand-alone



I've configured XP Professional on a workstation. Is works perfect, but I will change this workstation into a stand-alone computer with connection to internet. I have a cable-modem for my internet-connection.
I have tried to disable the current workstation-connection, but I cannot solve the problem.
Can somebody tell me how I must configure my workstation so that I can use that computer as stand-alone?

Is this a Ethernet modem or a USB modem?

If ethernet, just plug the ethernet cable into the back of the cable modem, and set your NIC's IP & DNS to obtain automatically (Most cable providers more than likely use DCHP to assign IPs)

If USB, USB broadband modems are terrible, return it and buy a ethernet one.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
